What To Watch For: Chicago Bears at Jacksonville Jaguars

What should you watch for this Sunday when the Bears travel to Jacksonville?

This Sunday at 3:05 pm Central time, the Chicago Bears will take on the Jacksonville Jaguars in what, on paper at least, appears to be a mismatch. The Jags will be looking for their second win on the young season, while Chicago is looking for their 3rd win in a row.

The Jacksonville O is a one man show, with Maurice Jones-Drew as their only established offensive threat. Second year QB Blaine Gabbert is a very intelligent player that hasn't shown the consistency needed at the NFL level. The Bears are 3rd best in the NFL allowing just 67 yards rushing per game, and I'm sure they'll make a concentrated effort to rough up MJD. Not only because he's the #1 option, but also because of his ignorant remarks about Chicago QB Jay Cutler after the 2010 NFC Championship game.

If Jacksonville finds a tough go of it trying to run, the game could get ugly in a hurry. With the Rush Men of the Bears fired up to add to their 15 sacks on the season, and the Jags offensive line coming off a 6 sacks allowed, 6 QB hits allowed performance, look for multiple sacks from the Bears.

The Jaguars are giving up 150 yards a game on the ground, so Chicago will be looking to establish running backs Matt Forte and Michael Bush.

I see no way this game will be competitive, and I'm calling it Bears 36 and Jacksonville 6.
